Jonathan Taylor rips off 62-yard TD for longest run of his rookie season
Jonathan Taylor has been a solid running back for Indianapolis this season. It seemed like the former Wisconsin Badger took it to another level on Sunday against Las Vegas.
During Sunday’s game in Sin City, Taylor raced 62 yards for a touchdown. It was the longest run of his young NFL career:

Taylor’s speed wasn’t always the biggest talking point during his time in Madison. But it was sure on display on this run. He just used some pure speed to beast the defenders trying to chase him down.
Along with Nyheim Hines, the duo has been a solid one-two punch for the Colts this season. The second-round pick finished Sunday’s game with 150 yards and two touchdowns. That’s the most yards he’s rushed for in a game this season and his season-best for touchdowns.
His next best single-game rushing performance came against Minnesota in Week 2 when he ran 26 times for 101 yards and a touchdown.
It’s safe to say Taylor is adjusting nicely after a phenomenal career with Wisconsin. That’s a scary sight for opponents.
